The Creek Sell-out in Georgia

The Creek Sell-out in Georgia

William McIntoshPictured is William McIntosh, the son of a Creek woman and a Scotsman who fought with the Americans during the War of 1812 and was given the rank of General. On February 12, 1825, Chief McIntosh signed a treaty at Indian Springs which resulted in great displeasure of the Creeks when he sold the remaining Creek lands in Georgia. The U. S. Government paid $200,000 to get the land, and Chief McIntosh was after wards killed because of his actions.  Note: Some Creek Indian Records are available to members of georgiapioneers
